The question that everyone argues: Is Uncle Sam earning interest on student loans? It’s a loaded question, but I have an easy explanation
Our econ articles have two major themes: economic updates and research study analysis.
Economic updates include bimonthly or monthly update articles on the state of the economy in the US. Normally I’ll toss in some things happening around the world as their own separate articles if time permits.
Research study analysis articles incorporate the latest research and my personal philosophy to find interesting insights into society and human behavior. With the addition of some game theory elements, we can find some awesome outcomes and uncover why so much “science” in the research community is garbage.
If you're just starting out, take a quick look at my Philosophical Approach to Economics article. It will help give you an idea of where I stand on the science of economics. If you're ready to dive straight into research, a popular starting article is my answer to the question: Is Uncle Sam Earning Interest on Study Loans?
My original intention with this article wasn’t to marriage-bash.
It was actually to make a rebuttal to an article titled: “Women Are Getting Married Less And Less — And The Reason Why Might Shock You” by Bolde.

Pretty much left any money he had behind, bought an RV, and started living in the woods.
Doesn’t use money to buy anything, just fends for himself.

I received a pretty interesting email question the other day from a reader about why millennials are socialist, and I thought it’d make for a good article
Their email went something like this:
Hey Avi, I read your email about socialism [this one] and I was curious about why you think millennials are moving toward socialist policies?
And it’s a great question. For one, we live in an age unlike anything our ancestors could have ever imagined. Things are looking great, for now. Work hours have been reduced, health has improved, and quality of living has been steadily rising. Even crime has been dropping for some years. Why the sudden shift away from capitalism which has given us all of these benefits?
I feel like there are a few things at play here.
If you’ve watched the news recently, you’ve probably seen plenty of crime-related stories. If you watch it habitually, you’ve probably come to the conclusion that there is an epidemic of crime. It’s good for clicks and capturing people’s modern short-term attention spans.
However, the reality is a little different – Crime is actually down.
